I finally got around to watching the last two movies of Kara no Kyoukai, Mirai Fukuin and Mirai Fukuin Extra Chorus

I thought that it was rather appropriate that Ryougi Shiki in the future becomes a freaking mafia boss, that made my evening.

Yeah, I think it's pretty great that out of all TM protagonists she kind of has the best ending; mom, mafia boss, all around badass.

I think Gil says at some point that he doesn't actually need Kotomine's soul farm thanks to getting doused with grail curse juice, but he eats them anyway just because that's the way he rolls.

No, Gilgamesh gained a new 'body' from the mud so he doesn't need the support of the grail to stay in the world. But he still need plenty of energy/power to use all his abilities.

Kiritsugu probably just cut Saber off as soon as her role was fulfilled because he hated her.

It's more that Saber had nothing left to do there after the Grail is destroyed, so she let herself be snapped back to her time.

HF implied he was planning to wait until the next war to get involved, so presumably he'd just wait around and keep training Sakura until then? I don't think anything in Fate or UBW would stop another war from happening.

I guess he'd just slither off into irrelevance since he can't make a new Grail on his own. Doubtful that he's just let Sakura off the hook though.

Yeah Zouken presumably gets his poo poo kicked in 10 years later when Rin and Waver roll into town since I doubt he'd take them dismantling the grail lying down, and Nasu says that conflict is basically a grail war of its own.

They're probably saving All the Ills in the World for some point where he actually does something villainous, and that's basically a more dramatic mix of the same song.

Gilgamesh (Fate route spoilers) was essentially eating people to stay in the world as was found out near the end of the Fate route.

Saber (UBW route spoilers) Yeah Rin just has a poo poo ton of mana or something apparently

Rider (Heavens Feel route spoilers) Sakura is a loving holy grail herself so of course she'd have a near inexhaustible mana supply to keep Rider around

I mean, Sakura has so much mana she has to give it away or disperse it outside of what she gives to Rider. Its probably necessary to maintain Rider just so Sakura can live.

I really hope so. That song and all its variations was basically the one thing I felt the VN soundtrack did a 100% right. In contrast, everything else was either improved upon in later adaptions or replaced entirely. :v:

I don't think it will be ever used here. Kirei does basically nothing in UBW. All Evil of the World is strictly a Heaven's Feel music... and it's more a Dark Sakura theme.

I'm sure the songs will be used, but they're going to use old songs sparingly so that way it's a big deal for people who've heard it before to hear it again. I fully expect them to do what they did with Excalibur's theme in FZ where it was used like twice.

Honestly, I haven't found many that I've liked quite as much as the original, if just because they always play with, slow down, or otherwise mess with the violin section, which is honestly what I think of when I think of Excalibur. It just goes perfectly with the backing instruments.

So apparantly at some point, a fan translaton of Hollow Ataraxia came out. Is it a) worth reading through, and b) does it have ~super sexy nasu porn~ in it. If there is porn, is there a no-porn patch, like there is for fs/n?

The Vita remixes are OK. Most are inoffensive and some may even be a bit better. However, some just make you ask "What the hell happened here?"

Eh, definitely not a fan of either of those. With the Golden King remix I had to check that my headphones were plugged in correctly. Hard to describe exactly what I don't like about them, but if I had to try I would say that the issue is that they have way too much stuff going on sound-wise. Like someone was just loving around with the remix without any particular end goal in mind.

While this post is correct, the all ages patches to the English version of F/SN were made by importing stuff from the console ports, so it's far from impossible. It'll likely just take goddamn years unless someone licenses it officially.

Haven't gotten far enough to read it but apparently there's only one porn bit in the main story, the main Nasu porn cache is on the extra discs.

Admittedly I'm over playing Light and Shadow a big, but I think it's a fun remix of Light and Darkness. I prefer the original version myself because it's loving awesome and it plays over Shiro and Kirei's fight, but I think Light and Shadow is a lot of fun especially with the title being wailed. I actually legit think that remix of Golden King is fantastic because the theme has always given me the image of swords just being fired out of Babylon and the chaos of that song is perfected for the speed of shooting out swords chaotically is great. It's one of those love or hate it things and I can see why someone wouldn't care for it given how strange it is.
